daniel f. vellone: will this method work for a 40 year old sesamee corbin lock?
Richard Womack: You are wasting your time here if you have a New Sesamee Lock to decode. The NEW Sesamee Combination Locks Model K437, obviously has a different tumbler arrangement, no slot at all, just a flat spot on each of the paired 4 tumblers that are only about .020" inch wide. I milled open a new Sesamee lock to see the inner workings. Had it not been for that I would have never figured it out as I spent hours trying the method in this video with no success.
The new lock is very easy to bypass, but a real bitch to decode. A Master Combination Lock is a cake walk in comparison. After a day to figure it all out and making several tools out of a stainless feeler gauge to decode all 4 tumblers, I have been successful in decoding two of the new combination locks ,but still taking 15-20 minutes for each lock. When you are trying to indirectly access such a narrow spot on a tumbler that is paired tightly against another equally narrow tumbler on the inside of the lock, it must all be done by feel with some custom tools. So, all the videos and Instructions I was able to find on the internet deal with an older Sesamee Combination that apparently had a slot located in a much wider tumbler.
B Winford: Have a popular mechanics lock that resembles the corbin sesame. Not sure of the brand though/?
Jeff Quinn: I just got done "Hearing" my Second Sesamee Combo Lock, I first tried to do the Feeling for the notch in the wheels, then I just started to Listen to the lock and it payed off. It has been Years since I opened my Very First Combo Lock, that was back when I had bought the Decoding Kit that cost me a good little bit of Money. I was told by my boss that His Mother used to sit in her chair, watching Television as she felt for the Lock to have a slight change in it and She would open them up that way. Someone had told Her that she couldn't do it that way and according to my boss, she was never able to do it after that. I tried to decode one and after a few failed attempts at decoding the lock, I tried to Feel or Listen to the way the lock did and I opened my very first Sesamee Combo Lock. Of course, when I went into work the next day and told my boss of my accomplishment, He changed the Combo and handed me the lock as said "Here, Do it again!!" I eventually ended up giving up on the lock after a while. Lesson Learned, DON'T Brag about How You Opened up the Lock, rather just say you got the lock open and leave it at that!! Thank You for Your Video, I really enjoyed Hearing the way the lock operated, I did try to Decode it first and that sent me on the path to See how You did it. Thank You for a Successful Opening!! Sincerely, JeffQ
alex m.e.s.: I saw baby make better explanetion
Malcolm Keyes: It took me a couple days, (off and on) to retrieve the combination on this lock I have been hauling around for about 45 years. Came across it the other day while cleaning out some junk and figured I might come across something that might get me the combination again. Thanks for your instructions. Well done and to the point. Once I got the feel down so I could tell where things were it seemed easy. Thanks again.
Gary Schiltz: I appreciate your video. I have a fairly new Sesamee combination padlock that looks essentially like the one you show in your video, but mine is chrome plated. I tried changing the combination with an apparently faulty "key", and when I closed it, it wouldn't open again :-(
Since I'm in Ecuador, it is hard to get combination locks - I had someone bring me this one from the USA. So, I'd really like to figure out how to get this one open. I have tried making a couple of tools like you show in the video, plus one made of a wide coping saw blade, ground down to be thin enough to fit between the dials and the case. So far, I have been unable to feel any notches. Do you think they might have changed the design? I'll keep practicing, but I am doubtful...
pp R: Thank You!
John Bully: tried to decode my lock by turning one number at a time was up to 3550 saw this video and did in ten minutes brilliant
Kyle Taylor: Where exactly are you putting your feeler to start?
jingles373: Tried this several times but it did not work.
Bennett Wooten: Enjoyed watching your video on the lock decoding. I am trying to open a briefcase with the three roller on each side. Watch a couple of videos on it but no luck so far.
daniel f. vellone: I can slide the metal strip in at the upper end of the slot for every number. Where exactly should the strip slide in?
infernuses: awesome work you have done there sir, i now have my awesome combination lock under use again, thank you sir ;)
Cuneyt Sen: Thanks for the video. I tried and I did.
punishrs: will this method work on the brinks lock that looks similar to this lock
a1locksandkeys: If you bypass it, your back to square 1 when you found it. take the time to decode it.
Anthony Berke: Found an old Corbin Sesamee lock in my dad's garage. It was opened, but I stupidly locked it thinking it was on the correct combination. 7 yrs later, I'm still trying to bypass the lock to get it open, with no luck
Vani Gori: I've rolled through this lock probably 4 times to no avail. Long road trips, boring chick flicks with the ex wife....this lock has taunted me for at least 10 years. With your trick, I broke it in 10 mins. I'm shooting my guns in the air right now. thank you for making this video.
